Extremely Friendly and Relaxed Workspace
Guest Support Rep (Current Employee) –  Kelowna, BC20 February 2019
I have worked for the Walt Disney company for just over three years, and have enjoyed every moment of it. The people and management have all been extremely great to work with, and the work environment is very welcoming and enjoyable. Some days are difficult speaking to angry guests on the phone and via email, however a lot of the time the guests are just looking for help with things and services they don't understand. There are a lot of extra things the company does to ensure its employees are recognized and appreciated, and management is always as transparent as they can be. While the salaries at the office could be a bit more competitive, they are sufficient for the work we are asked of.
Pros
Free snacks and in office games room
Cons
Pay is less than disreable at times, some things are not addressed as quickly by management when brought up, there can be a lack of advancement at the office careerwise.

Ape Hierarchy
Lead Artist (Former Employee) –  glendal, ca19 February 2018
No better proof of evolution than to work at Disney. If you want to observe petty human behavior at it's best then work here. If you want to work in a slow-motion train wreck with 50's style management, work here.

Magic and Pixie Dust only go so far
Cast Member (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON1 February 2018
Working for Disney is a dream come true until you work there. The corporate side of the company is soul-crushing, and will squeeze every last ounce of magic out of you until there is nothing left.
Pros
Surrounded by Disney Magic and children of all ages
Cons
Company doesn't care about their employees

Great and fun place to work at
CAST MEMBER (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON1 May 2017
Working for Disney trains you to excel in the field of customer service, working there was fun, but challenging and management was very flexible and considerate. Working at Disney was also very lively and the workplace culture was very polite and easy-going. The hardest pert of the job was how busy the store could get and working under all of that pressure, but again, it made the work interesting and challenging. This helped in teaching me how to handle such pressure and how to accommodate customer's needs. The most enjoyable aspect of the job was bringing a smile to people's faces and being immersed within Disney's culture.

A really great place to work once you are a permanent employee
Sr. Mech. Designer (Former Employee) –  Glendale, CA26 April 2013
THey treat you like gold and give you a lot of creative freedom BUT its very hard to become a permanent employee and there is a lot of competition. Other than that, the work is stimulating and fun. The management has a good sense of comradarie.
Pros
free coffee, cereal, and bagels
Cons
you are damned if your project goes over it's hours budget, even if you were assigned after the fact.
